Top Things to Do in Lancaster for Couples
Dinner Off the Beaten Path
Nothing beats dining at a restaurant steeped in history. Dating back to the 1920s, The Horse Inn is known as a hidden classic of Lancaster. That’s because its front door sits on a small, narrow alley not easily seen. Inside, guests are seated in refurbished horse stalls in what was once the second-floor hayloft.
Our Tip: Ask about the restaurant’s connection to the Underground Railroad, Prohibition, and the material used to create its massive wooden bar. Oh, and order the restaurant’s most famous dish – Tenderloin Tips on Toast.
Lancaster County Covered Bridges
Lancaster County is home to over 25 covered bridges. With many dating back to the 1800s, these beautiful landmarks have been structurally restored to preserve our history. Download this map to take a self-guided covered bridge driving tour. Enjoy a little spontaneity and look for small farmer’s markets and local shops to explore along the way.
Our Tip: Local folklore has coined these historic bridges “kissing bridges” based on a tradition of sharing a kiss halfway through the bridge.
If self-care is your love language, plan a relaxing retreat at the Spa at Intercourse Village. Set within a historic 1900s farmhouse, the spa offers a romantic couple’s massage in a beautiful setting.
Our Tip: Enhance your experience with a therapeutic add-on such as aromatherapy, hot stones, or a foot soak.
Hot Air Balloon Ride
Check off a bucket list item together or arouse your adventurous side as you soar above the Lancaster County farmlands. Experience the tranquil stillness of the open air and unforgettable views during an hour-long hot air balloon ride.
Our Tip: Book a private ride complete with a complimentary champagne toast for an extra special experience.
Wine & Cheese Train
Savor a curated selection of wine and cheese pairings aboard the luxurious accommodations of an authentic vintage steam train at Strasburg Rail Road. The 45-minute train ride takes a serene course through the Amish countryside.
Our Tip: Start or end your train ride with a stroll around the Strasburg Rail Road train station where you may meet the “Streetmosphere” living history enactors.
